- Sammie Adjei, a former goalkeeper of the Black Stars, has stated his readiness to lead the embattled Ghana Football Association
- According to the shot-stopper, he is capable of leading Ghana's apex football governing body following its dissolution
- The GFA was dissolved after Anas' explosive investigation dubbed 'Number 12'
Ex-Ghana international footballer, Sammy Adjei, has indicated his readiness to lead the Ghana Football Association (GFA) as its president if given the chance by the appropriate quarters.
The 37-year-old believes he has a future in football administration and has already set his sights on replacing immediate past president of the association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, as GFA president.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Pulse.com.gh, the former top goalkeeper, who was speaking in an interview with Accra-based Asempa FM, said he had all that it took to be successful when voted into office as the next GFA boss.
“I could easily become the next GFA President. If God wills me to be GFA President I will be. But I know I am very capable,” the former Hearts of Oak goalie said in the radio interview.
Sammy Adjei enjoyed a fruitful football career on the local scene, winning numerous trophies with Ghanaian football giants, Accra Hearts of Oak.
He has however been clubless in the last few years after parting ways with Hearts of Oak.
Sammy Adjei was part of the Black Stars squad that qualified Ghana to its first ever World Cup in 2006.
Nyantakyi resigned from his post in June 2018 after being implicated in a documentary spearheaded by ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The top job at the association has since been vacant, with a normalisation committee setup by FIFA to supervise football administration in the country until fresh elections are held by the executive committee next year.
However, following talks with world football governing body, FIFA, the dissolution of the country's football governing body may be overturned.
Not too long ago, YEN.com.gh reported that Ghana's Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo, indicated that her outfit did not have evidence to prosecute Kwesi Nyantakyi following the explosive 'Number 12' documentary.
She said her outfit was yet to receive the go-ahead or the notes that would cause them to start a prosecution.
